Following the reveal of the game’s release date this week, SNK has decided to show off Haohmaru and Genjuro from Samurai Shodown. According to the game’s info, Haohmaru is a wandering swordsman with no loyalties to any lord, as he serves as the game’s main protagonist. “This rōnin loves to fight against strong opponents and puts his all into defeating anyone who stands in the way with his legendary sword Fugudoku.” On the other side of the coin, we have Genjuro, who is Haohmaru’s main rival. According to the devs, “usually found in red-light districts and gambling parlors, Genjuro slashes and discards everything in his path with his ruthless sword. Those who enjoy living would do well to avoid him at all costs.” Enjoy watching both characters in action as we wait for Samurai Shodown to be released on June 25th.
